Our aim at Highams Park 6th Form is to help students succeed not only in academia but also in developing competencies such as leadership and team work. These skills are essential for entering Higher Education or employment and therefore we encourage students to get involved in opportunities outside of the classroom as much as their study commitments will allow.
Our Prefect team is made up of students in Year 13 who wish to make the 6th Form the best place it can be and ensure Student Voice is heard. This not only gives students the opportunities in leadership and working as a team but also in an application and assessment process. The Student Leadership Team meet at least every half term to discuss ideas and issues in the 6th Form. However, initially they have to write letters outlining why they want to join the team and what they can offer. Applicants then have to complete a group activity and if successful are then interviewed by members of the school Senior Leadership Team.
